Tried my ultra 2 advance out.
The advance still kills the ball. I only hit maybe 30 swings off the tee. I feel you can't hurt it as bad off the tee as hitting with a pitcher. Anyway the first ball I hit a laser to a 300ft. fence. I'd say it's still an ultra 2. But I couldn't hit normal with this bat because it would kill my middle finger. I like the knob for swinging but this isn't know BP bat. I hit hand over hand and the pressure just kills my finger. My senior combat is my distance bat for it's endloaded and the advance my line drive bat. I never though I'd say that about the ultra. See all you guys in Montgomery Al. in March ought to be a barn burner with the ultra and the combat.

Lefty & Monte: up here in the Seattle area we have been using the U-II-A for BP. It has pop out of the wrapper and we are about 50-50 on the knob design. It seems to work best for those using the overlap grip. Also, has shortened the bat in leverage as the maximum length of any bat is 34 inches, measured end to end. This new knob design requires too much of the total length of the 34 inches to permit a leverage equal to the standard type of bat knob. This reduction of leverage length when added to recent lack of durability probably will result in a serious reduction of marketability for Miken. In fact, for those of us that have been breaking so darn many ( I broke 7 U-II's last season and one already this season) we think Miken should change the name from Ultra II-A (advanced) to Ultra II-D (for disposable). Can't afford to keep replacing the U-II's. So, I too have picked up two Combat Da Bomb Originals. So far, so good.

Monty I'm playing with the AAA 55 Mid South Travelers team out of Memphis. Looks like we'll have a pretty good team for having some softball fun and giving other teams problems. It's all about having a great time playing with some good guys. See you in Mongomery.
